I forgot to put music videos on here. My kids LOVED music videos at young ages. Here are a few that they wanted over and over due to color and dancing:

OK GO
Chvrches - Gun
Cookie Monster parody songs
Major Lazer - Light It Up
Coldplay - Adventure of a Lifetime
Galantis - No Money
Lemaitre - Closer
Fitz and the Tantrums (multiple)
Sia (multiple)
Kiesza - Hideaway
Ylvis - The Fox
Walk the Moon - Shut Up and Dance
Louis the Child - Slow Down Love
Death Cab for Cutie - Grapevine Fires
Post Malone - Sunflower
Miike Snow - Genghis Khan

YMMV

Neither one of these shows are "kids shows". Even if you let your kids watch them.

Yeah, I guess I'd put it more mid-shelf (annoying jokes but relatively original story/themes). Also my wife likes it enough to rewatch, so it gets bonus points.

Hopefully when those 30 DVDs arrive from ebay I can add to the disney list.

My kids are into MST3K, too, as that's my background noise for all time (they -really- know Killer Shrews well)

It's not exactly for little kids... or, rather, you really need to be careful on the episodes.

In the new seasons, The Christmas That Almost Wasn't was pretty clean, as was Reptilicus and Yongary.

The shows tend to be PG-ish

Michael Jackson videos are a hit with them... except Thriller. Scares my son too much.
